Reasons To Use 3D Virtual Tours

In real estate marketing, finding a strategy that works well for everyone - agent, seller, and buyer - makes for a winning solution. Different audiences often require different approaches based on their respective priorities. The industry standard has long been 2D photos, and rightly so, as they bring definitive value to agents, buyers, and sellers alike. A well done photoshoot can drive interest and emotionally engage potential home buyers as well as impress sellers who want to be sure their homes will be presented in the best light possible, in turn winning an agent a listing.

With the advancement of camera technology, both DSLR and smartphone - hi-res real estate photography will continue to be a critical part of any real estate marketing campaign. Bu, since technology never stops, neither do we. Amazing real estate photos are now only one part of the equation for both buyers and sellers - the future is in 3D virtual tours.

For the buyer

Over 50% of current home buyers start their search online, with an increasing number of them looking for a home not located in their immediate area. Younger, digitally "native" first-time buyers want a real sense of how a home really looks and feels that can't be achieved by static photography. It's no surprise that the two things the modern home buyer wants most from a listing are large, high-quality photos and 3D virtual home tours.

For real estate agents and sellers

In a recent survey of real estate agents, 80% say their clients would prefer to spend less time staging their home. Almost as many (77%) say that after a staging and photography shoot have concluded, they spot an important feature of the home they missed during the session. With Matterport, agents and sellers can create an always-open house which is perfectly staged 100% of the time. This can help drive greater interest in a property and better qualify leads who come to subsequent open houses.

For Property Managers

Present your building and vacant suites to potential tenants in a 3D Virtual Tour. Make them fall in love with your home or apartment before they physically visit it. Attract more qualified prospects by giving viewers the most complete representation of your property, filtering out those the property may not be right for while also attracting leads that are genuinely interested in your property.
